Ever since staying at the amazing Camp Katur earlier this year, I've been thinking about where to next go 'glamping' in Yorkshire... Or more particularly, where would be best to while away a Winter weekend, sipping hot beverages, getting cosy, putting away the iPhone and enjoying the company of the ones you love.
Here are 4 dreamy Winter Yorkshire getaways...
North Star Club in Sancton is where Yorkshire meets North America. It's inspired by rustic wilderness retreats, more akin to woodland hotels, built for wealthy industrialists in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. There's four Woodland suites, three Hideaway suites, and one indulgent Star suite. Each has its own large veranda, cosy sitting room, large bedroom and spa style bathroom!
Just outside of Masham, the Bivouac on the Swinton Park Estate is a cafe I've been to many times. Surrounding it are yurts, and also Tree Lodges!
This type of accommodation, right next to the amazing Druid's Temple, sleep 7 people, there's a range and gas hob for cooking, hot water heated by wood burner, and no electricity!
A Place in the Pines is outside Osmotherley, North Yorkshire - a place I know well. There are four canvas lodges there, each with their own bathroom, kitchen, deck and personality. To keep warm, there's super-stoves inside! I really dig the Scandinavian feel of it.
Want to feel like a hobbit in Yorkshire? The Shire House is a Yorkshire Winter getaway with a fantasy twist. It can accommodate 6 people, has a fully fitted kitchen and luxury bathroom, and seating area around a large dining table next to a cosy fire. North Shire, voted one of the top 50 cottages in the U.K., is home to farm animals, as well as this gorgeous bathtub! Oh so dreamy.
